People move to San Anselmo for the amazing weather, easy access to trails, good public and private schools, the charming downtown and great family neighborhoods. While it is one of the further towns in Southern Marin from the city, it remains a desirable destination for people who want to live an outdoor lifestyle and with a focus on family activities. Comforts is the hub of the food scene in San Anselmo with their famous Chinese Chicken Salad and Chicken Okasan and MH Bakery usually has a line out the door for their coffee and artisan bread. Much like downtown Sonoma, the town has a Western feel from a bygone era and collectors flock to many antique shops. San Anselmo is an ideal place to raise a family and partake in the small-town lifestyle with the vast Marin county open space for your backyard.
